roof on the ground there still still crime scene tape left entire roof may collapse still. part of the reason the fire got so out of control is the smoke detectors were not working. new management just took over this property days ago. since the fire - the family who was living here tells me the company has been bending over backwards to make everything right. maintince crews are going door to door, checking everyone's alarms. they even brought in a crew to make sure the family could move into a new home in time for the holidays. but it's not just the property managers who are stepping up. the whole communoty is rallying behind the family - bringing by clothes, gift cards, even christmas decorations so their 2 year old can still believe in holiday spirit. kristopher youts home destroyed in fire ((we've had people that we only know in passing. people that we've never met. places we didn't even know existed have all come together to help and it's a little overwhelming.)) obviously a devastating situation especially just a few days
